A Million Paper Cuts - a poem by Angela Bridgman

Every right denied; every dream deferred
Every injustice and indignity endured
Is one more paper cut
They are cumulative
And deadly as any gun or knife

An Ode To Pat (McCrory) - a poem by Angela Bridgman

I wanna tell y'all a story 'Bout a man named McCrory Made a law 'bout who can use what potty Rest of the world thinks he is rather dotty This man is a bigot Can you dig it? North Carolina often wonders How one man could make so many blunders But come November we're gonna make him pay When we vote hi...

Just For Once - a poem by Angela Bridgman

Just for once, I want to be allowed to cry To give voice to that shuddering sigh To be truthful, not having to lie When inside I feel like I could die When my broken wings no longer can fly Just for once, I want to be weak And let the tears roll down my cheek When I fail to find what I seek When pro...

I Am The Phoenix - a poem by Angela Bridgman

My life burns down 'round my ears My pain a bright flame that sears No way forward can I see The world arrayed against me I'm cast into the Abyss Feels like there is no justice Reality, darkest fear I scream but no one can hear When I feel adrift at sea Farthest from my apogee Up from the ashes I sh...

Orlando - Poem by Angela Bridgman

Orlando - by Angela Bridgman (for the forty nine) They fomented hate for years Now give us crocodile tears But they care not For my sisters and brothers My family just “others.” Nine and forty souls were lost My transgender heart tempest-tossed Their gentle souls Cut down by a gunman’s hate They did...

Echo In The Wind - Poem By Angela Bridgman

An echo in the wind Screaming her every word Wanting only to be heard Is it really so absurd? A girl without a home Fights her internal war Beaten, battered, bruised and sore Is there really nothing more? A spirit without form Three and twenty years grown In a body not her own For what sin must she ...
